The Rev. Elizabeth Mathers
A moment of Silence
Blessed are those whom you choose and bring near
to live in your courts.
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
your holy temple. R
By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance,
O God of our salvation;
you are the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas.
By your strength you established the mountains;
you are girded with might.
You silence the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves,
the tumult of the peoples.
Those who live at earth’s farthest bounds are awed by your signs;
you make the gateways of the morning and the evening
shout for joy. R
You visit the earth and water it;
you greatly enrich it;
Confession and Absolution
Invitation to Confession
Dear friends in Christ,
God is steadfast in love and infinite in mercy;
God welcomes sinners and invites us to this table.
Let us confess our sins, confident in God’s forgiveness.
Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us,
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name. Amen.
The Peace
the river of God is full of water; you provide the people with grain,
for so you have prepa-red it.
All stand, and the presiding celebrant addresses the people
You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges,
softening it with showers, and blessing its growth.
You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks overflow with richness.
The members of the community, ministers and people, may greet one another
in the name of the Lord.
The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
the hills gird themselves with joy,
Offertory Hymn #403 Let all things now living
the meadows clothe themselves with flocks,
the valleys deck themselves with grain,
they shout and sing together for joy. R
